Frozen

She's the daughter of the CEO. That's how
She got her job. He's the former mayor's
Son, and that is why he's mayor now.
The singer's name may be familiar. Her
Dad sang. The football player's father
Coached, and also played. We get
To watch them on TV, our nation's budding
Dynasties. We're set apart. I haven't been
Promoted or received in raise in years.
My kid lives in the basement, paying off
Her student loans. The land of opportunity,
Once lush and open, now has frozen closed,
And those who have will gather more as those
With little learn to live with less.
